  1. Totally agree. If I'm not in the right mindset the tattoo is much harder to take. The worst place I've been tattooed so far is my sternum. I can only do about 3 hour sessions, my first I did it with no aid, second and third I had to use numbing cream. It only lasted 1.5 hours, and when it wore off it happened fairly fast, not gradually, but it was definitely worth it for me. I've never taken painkillers, but I have friends who have and they have told me it doesn't really help with the pain, but it takes the edge off.
  2. Hey everyone, My name is Jake, I'm an apprentice (since March 2016), out of Red Deer, Alberta. My main focus right now is traditional, while I would love to be competent in all styles of tattooing I would really like to branch out into Neo-Trad and big Japanese pieces. I've only been lurking around the forum for a few hours now, so I hope I'm not out of place by sharing my flash on this post. Always looking for critiques so please feel free to do so! I'd also like to mention that I'm now taking on painting commisions. Right now I am charging flat rate per size, regardless of time or detail, please message for inquiries!
